Windows Azure Application Service Definition

Posted: September 19, 2012 in Live in a Cloudy World, Windows Azure

After creating your windows azure application on visual studio, under the Windows Azure project you will find two configuration files and one for the definition. Two of these files are used for uploading, configuring your application and its VM on Windows Azure. In this post we will talk about the servicedefinition.csdef.

The service definition is an XML file that defines and describes your service that is hosted on Windows Azure VM. It contains all what is related to the endpoints, certificates, local resources and Startups. The service definition contains the configuration for any number of added roles (WebRole, WorkerRole and VirtualMachineRole) in the application, LoadBalancerProbes and NetworkTrafficRules.

During my online research I saw a web page containing several service definition files and each one of them has different contents and each one of them is explained in the same Web Page. You can find all this page in the following link.
